Cheese Fondue

Try this recipe for a “Cheesy” Valentine's Day"

1 clove garlic
1/4 lb. Gruyere cheese, shredded
1/4 lb Emmenthaler cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
fresh ground pepper


Pour wine into a saucepan, add flour and cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring constantly.
(you can make it on stovetop in a saucepan or in the fondue pot)
Stir in the nutmeg.
Bring to a simmer and add the cheese mixture, one handful at a time. Add lemon juice and pepper and stir over low heat until smooth and cheese is melted and bubbling.
Rub the inside of a saucepan with the garlic halves; discard the garlic.
Pour cheese mixture into a fondue pot and light the tea candle underneath to keep warm and you are ready for dipping.
What to serve with cheese fondue:

Some of my faves are: cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber slices, radish, celery, baby carrots, pearl onions, Granny Smith apples, crackers, pretzels, bread sticks, ham, sausage, roasted vegetables.

  1. I will definitely try this one. We all love dining fondue style in our family. We actually love trying new and different fondue recipes every now and then. Just last night we had seafood fondue. And even if the kids didn't start it of right away with the shrimps (they said it looks like caterpillars, ewww!), they ended up loving it with my sweet-and-sour soy dip...and with tofu! How about that? :)
